After four weeks in a Swedish prison, a judge allowed A$AP Rockyto go back to the United States while the courts determine the verdict in his assault case. The multiplatinum-selling rapper quickly hopped on Twitter to express his gratitude for all the support he received during the ordeal.
“THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS,” he wrote in all caps. “I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU.
“THIS HAS BEEN A VERY DIFFICULT AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO THANK THE COURT FOR ALLOWING ME BLADI AND THOTO TO RETURN TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL OF THE LOVE AND SUPPORT.”
The comment section lit up with reactions from his famous peers. Tyler the Creator, Macklemore, Big Sean, Pharrell, YG and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were among the many to send their well wishes and celebrate his current freedom.
“JUST DOWNLOADED 3 HOURS OF SMACK DVD,” Tyler wrote in all caps. “NIGGA IM BOUT TO HOLD THE F*** OUTTA YOU.”
Rocky’s situation is far from over. The judge is expected to hand down the verdict on August 14, meaning the A$AP Mob member would only have 12 days to get back to the the U.S. and then back to Sweden. Prosecutors have reportedly recommended a six-month sentence rather than the two-year maximum.
He has pleaded not guilty.
